From terrorist group to political legitimacy
I do believe that if Hamas or better put, the moderates within the organization want to fully function as a recognized political entity, that it/they will need to re-dress their charter first.
It makes sense as a document for a terrorist group, but not as a political one that needs to function fully within the frame work of democracies and international (financial, aid and otherwise) exchanges. The all or nothing mentality in any democratic setting is just plain counter to working with or for people who believe differently. Diversity and acceptance of such provides a stabilizing factor in a functioning, well working democracy.
Of course, as can be suspected, the mostly fundamental Arab countries will no doubt try to support the new government, if not for the sake of looking good themselves, than to perhaps counter the possible influence of Iran, which has pledged $50 million in assistance.
I think this could turn this whole Palestinian situation into a 'Muslim' (read, fundamental) versus the West kind of thing. I hope moderates on all sides will overcome the forces of 'all or nothing', otherwise, again, the ordinary Palestinian citizens will carry the burden of yet another unsolved certainty of a peaceful daily life.
